History : By late 1965 the production of the popular Silver Cloud III drew to a close and a new chapter began in the history of Rolls-Royce with the introduction of the Silver Shadow. From a design perspective, the new Silver Shadow was a major departure from previous models. Rolls-Royces chief designer, the late John Blatchley was entrusted with the styling of the new model. A number of new mechanical innovations were also introduced which included unitary construction, disc brakes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. The Silver Cloud III’s 6.2 litre power unit was retained until late 1969 when the engines capacity was increased to 6,750cc. The overall result was a motor car equipped with all the luxuries that Rolls-Royce were famous for in a form more suitable for modern motoring. In 1976 the second series of Silver Shadows were released, with rack and pinion steering and updated bumpers. This particular example was completed in August of 1977 and purchased by the second and most recent owner in 1980 who kept it until very recently when acquired by Frank Dale & Stepsons. It has travelled 45,000 miles from new and is finished in very 1970’s colours of nutmeg over walnut with tan leather interior. It is complete with original books and tools and has been prepared both mechanically and cosmetically in our workshops. This low mileage represents a real taste of 1970’s motoring Rolls-Royce style.
